A first quarter brawl between Kentucky and Tennessee resulted in something extremely unusual in college football: all players, on the field and on sidelines, earned personal foul penalties.
Yes, that means that 150 penalties were assessed at one time, and means that if any player receives another personal foul, they will be ejected from the game.

If you were wondering, that is 2,250 penalty yards at one time.
A spokesman from the SEC explained the call in a reply to SEC Country:
Team unsportsmanlike penalties were issued on the play in question. Rule 9-2-6 states that any player, coach or identified squad member who commits two unsportsmanlike conduct fouls in the same game shall be disqualified.
